At AMARA, we're working hard to become a greener, more sustainable company and make changes where we see fit. All of our cartons are 100% recyclable and the majority are manufactured from 100% recycled materials.
Our aim is to ensure that orders are sufficiently protected to avoid any damages during transit, whilst being considerate of the environmental impact that packaging has.
60% of our cushion void fill is recyclable and we switched from vinyl tape to gummed tape in 2019. We made the decision to continue using plastic void fill as it reduces the number of damages and subsequent replacement orders, which offsets lower CO2 emissions than paper fill because it’s also lighter to transport.
We have recently introduced Variable Depth boxes to reduce both air in our packaging boxes and the requirement for void fill. This ensures the carbon footprint of each parcel is reduced as less packaging is used.
We continue to work closely with our packaging provider, to ensure we’re up to date with the most environmentally-friendly packaging available that will also deliver our products safely.
